Review Pixel People

Brandon Girod
Robust profession system, pixel art, unique story setting
Lots of waiting
Pixel People for Android has resuscitated the casual town builder genre for me in a very surprising way. It brought a sense of exploration in an otherwise static gameplay design that I didn't think possible. If you think you're full on games like this, get ready for a second helping.
The game's story tackles the genre from a different approach than most others. You are basically tasked with rebuilding society after Earth and humanity have been completely erased. Was it comets, war, or a rampant computer A.I. that did us all in? Who knows, I was wiped out with the rest of them. But your job is simple, create a thriving society with the humble beginnings of a few good clones.
Gameplay is similar to most other town builders that you're probably familiar with. You start with a quick tutorial that shows you a few mechanics you've probably seen a million times before, but then it introduces you to the professions. Each clone you make is essentially the clone of a profession. You start off with two of them, but you can mix and combine them to discover exciting and new professions. Finding a new profession makes you feel great because you get to "unwrap" it much like you unwrapped Pokemon cards as a kid, and the majority of the time you're rewarded with other perks as well as a building that your new clone will work in. More clones equals more buildings, and this allows your economy to grow and thrive.
Pixel People is a great town builder that rewards your patience. You won't find yourself waking up the app just to collect a few coins. Instead you'll find yourself wondering which of the 250+ professions you'll discover this time.
